Overall, 27-year-old P. Vanishaantini, who hails from Seremban and is an entrepreneur also made Malaysia proud by securing 6th place out of 39 finalists in the competition.

The crown of Mrs World 2023 went to the contestant from Germany while the first runner-up and second runner-up were Mrs Canada and Mrs Colombia, respectively.

The majestic Wau costume was designed by Sarawak designer Saran Anak Lagong, measuring 3.8m high and 4.8m wide. Altogether, the costume weighed approximately 10kg.

The costume was inspired by the traditional floral batik patterns comprising Malaysia’s very own hibiscus, orchids, pagoda, Ixora, Bougainvillea, roses, and frangipani flowers.
